|Gods Abundant Favor to Earth and Man|
|For the Chief Musician. A Psalm. A Song of David.|
| ||PRAISE 1 waiteth for thee, O God, in Zion;|
And unto thee shall the vow be performed.
| ||O thou that hearest prayer,|
Unto thee shall all flesh come.
| ||Iniquities 2 prevail against me:|
As for our transgressions, thou wilt forgive 3 them.
| ||Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee,|
That he may dwell in thy courts:
We shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house,
Thy holy temple.
| ||By terrible things thou wilt answer us in righteousness,|
O God of our salvation,
Thou that art the confidence of all the ends of the earth,
And of 4 them that are afar off upon the sea:
| ||Who by his strength setteth fast the mountains,|
Being girded about with might;
| ||Who stilleth the roaring of the seas,|
The roaring of their waves,
And the tumult of the peoples.
| ||They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at thy tokens:|
Thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.
| ||Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it,|
Thou greatly enrichest it;
The river of God is full of water:
Thou providest them grain, when 5 thou hast so prepared the 6 earth.
| ||Thou waterest its furrows abundantly;|
Thou settlest 7 the ridges thereof:
Thou makest it soft with showers;
Thou blessest the springing thereof.
| ||Thou crownest the 8 year with thy goodness;|
And thy paths drop fatness.
| ||They 9 drop upon the pastures of the wilderness;|
And the hills are girded with joy.
| ||The pastures are clothed with flocks;|
The valleys also are covered over with grain;
They shout for joy, they also sing.
